GREAT SALT TAKES: How ’bout that Jazz?

The Utah Jazz have entered the All-Star break with the best record in the NBA. Are they for real? What are they doing right? Our friends and local experts weigh in:

“It’s really a shame that Vivint Arena is operating with very limited capacity right now, because that place would be rocking on game nights. There’s nothing more exciting to basketball fans than dunks and 3-pointers, which is exactly what the Jazz are trying to do to every single time they have the ball. It’s a ton of fun to watch.f”

“Having the NBA’s best record at the all-star break is a big deal. Having the Western Conference’s No. 1 seed in the playoffs is even bigger. The only two times that has been accomplished by the Jazz led to NBA Finals appearances. Is it time for No. 3?”

“I think they really have a great chemistry. Quin Snyder seems to be the perfect coach for them at this time. Clearly they’ve all bought into what they’re doing to the system that they’re doing. They pass the ball, It’s fun to watch.”

“I’m pumping the brakes a little bit. I’m being cautiously optimistic. Yeah, they’re killing it right now. They have the best record in the league right now and I think we should enjoy every win that comes along. They’ve all been so convincing. But, really, when it comes to playoff time, that’s going to be the true indicator as to just how good this team is.”
